I just found all my old neighborhood buddies! Thank you Tamera!! I see many of them on facebook but this is even better.

It has made me realize how much I miss them all. I had hoped to keep in touch and let myself believe that nothing would change because I wasn't moving very far. It seems though that it changed everything. I felt like a part of me had been amputated. To see all the family pictures and what everyone is doing. It's like the phantom pain of that part that is gone. It makes me so sad, and happy at the same time. I have made some incredibly wonderful friends where I am now but they can never replace the friendships I had. Sometimes it's good to open up wounds, clean them out, let them heal. It hurts but you know it will get better.

Guess what?? I got a job! I actually got a job I had been wanting for about a year. I am the assistant pastry chef at Kneaders. It's part time and perfect. I am so excited. I start tomorrow.

Change can be good.

Of course you can add me since I added you without even asking! :) It's crazy how hard it is to keep in touch after you move. I feel the same way about the ward splitting. It's sad how easy it is to lose track of people when you don't see them every Sunday. Becca decided not to go to Footlocker. None of the girls she is closest to on the team were going so that made her decide not to go. She will for sure go next year.

I'm so happy to hear from you! Moving does change everything, darn it. I feel the same way. I had no idea how comfortable I was in that neighborhood. We lived there for nearly ten years—that's a good chunk of life. Clint and Cassie try to come back to their old ward when they're in town, and everyone but the Burke's has bugged out. It's true—you can never go back. But, like you said, change is a good thing.

Awesome job! How cool is that?
